Since we had amazing success with our numerous days of art events and other fun activities at our previous exhibitions, we again offered several days of interesting art activities for attending IGOR members. We had an art seminar with noted guest speakers, a guided tour of the best galleries in Scottsdale, a private dinner at a downtown Scottsdale restaurant and much more. The public opening was on Thursday night artwalk, January 26th. We put forth maximum effort to make this a very successful exhibition. This was a time to learn, make friends, connections, create moments for social media and other publicity, win awards and last but not least, to sell your beautiful artworks!
